Renovating the Internet architecture is no easy feat: it not only depends on the technology, but also on complex social, politic
Open Internet Architecture Renovation
This is one of the one of the 2019 R&I Actions for H2020 Topic identifier: ICT-24-2018-2019, Next Generation Internet - An Open Internet Initiative.
According the call text, this RIA will cover the following scenario:
"supporting communities of developers in ensuring Internet architecture evolution towards better efficiency, scalability, security and resilience. Auditing, testing and improving protocols and open source software and hardware that are used to manage the Internet, with renewed design goals such as isolation of contingencies, redundancy and self-repair, disruption tolerance, transparency, better real-time behaviour and energy efficiency. Ability to roll-out at Internet scale should be assessed as part of the proposed solutions."
This discussion area will help to identify the challenges arising within the scenario described above, as well as potential solutions to address these challenges, and to identify gaps that need to be filled by research and innovation projects within this topic area.
